Toyota Reviews

New Cars
Good: Sharper looking than original Auris. Good quality feel to the interior. Popular hybrid version offers low CO2, 60mpg, low maintenance and phenomenal reliability. Well built.
Bad: Loses height and ease of entry advantage of previous Auris. Automatic is CVT only not torque converter. Epicyclic in hybrid.
Good: Comes with a 1.2 turbo petrol engine, a 1.8 hybrid and a new 180PS 2.0 litre hybrid system.
Bad: Diesels dropped completely.
Good: Spacious interior and fairly large boot with low loading lip. Feels well put together. Good ride quality. Hybrid version offers low CO2 and 60mpg.
Bad: Not a fun drive on 15-inch wheels. Sporty drivers don't like the hybrid's epicyclic transmission. Step in load area floor.
Good: Well-equipped and easy to drive. Comfortable long distance cruiser. Lots of interior space.
Bad: Bland styling inside and out. Not particularly fun to drive. Apart from 2.0-litre diesel the engines need to be worked hard to gain meaningful performance.
Good: Comfortable and quiet on the move. Economical diesels including 1.6-litre diesel. Feels well built and durable.
Bad: Essentially a facelift of the previous Avensis with a more attractive front.
Good: Plenty of kit as standard. Quirky looks.
Bad: Noisy engine. Interior feels cheap compared to the Volkswagen Up. Not much space. Steering wheel doesn't adjust for reach.
Good: Outstanding ride, road holding and handling. A pleasure to drive. 1.2 petrol or 1.8 hybrid. Solid build quality.
Bad: Rear headroom is tight for adults. Rear seats don't fold flat. Hybrid isn't as fun to drive as the 1.2 manual. No diesel engines.
Good: Hugely enjoyable and involving to drive. Great amounts of grip and superb handling. Free-revving 2.0-litre non-turbo engine produces 200PS. Low rev torque improves for 2017 MY.
Bad: Cabin lacking in quality. Not suited to sitting in busy traffic. Poor torque up to 2016.
Good: Large and useable load area. Great off-road. Wide choice of body styles. 3.5 tonne towing capacity.
Bad: Not as good on the road as some of its pick-up rivals. Average fuel economy. Top spec models are expensive.
Good: Big and tough. Good off road and good for towing. Excellent reliability record.
Bad: Expensive to buy and run. Old-fashioned to drive on the road. High boot floor.
Good: The first serious production hydrogen fuel cell car. Very quiet, pleasant and relaxed to drive.
Bad: Very expensive to buy at £66,000 (before any government grants).
Good: Low emissions of 70g/km. Relaxed, quiet and comfortable. Spacious cabin. Lots of safety kit as standard.
Bad: Expensive to buy new. Official fuel economy figures are unrealistic in real world driving.
Good: 30 miles of realistic pure electric range. Practical, smooth, comfortable and quiet. Well-equipped.
Bad: Thousands of pounds more than the standard Prius. Needs to be charged frequently or makes no financial sense.
Good: Hybrid only seven-seater. Low emissions of 96g/km for Icon trim. Easy to drive. Spacious interior and seven seats as standard.
Bad: Expensive compared to other MPVs. CVT gearbox not pleasant to accelerate hard, so you don't. A bigger battery would have taken it further.
Good: Easy to drive and cheap to run. Will carry up to three Euro pallets and tow 2.5 tonnes. Backed by Toyota's five-year warranty.
Bad: No high-roof option. Sliding doors feel cheap. Entry-level models don't get air con or alarm as standard.
Good: Cheap to run. Capable of carrying up to nine. Lots of interior space. Backed by Toyota's five year warranty.
Bad: Rivals are better to drive. Boot space is limited when all of the seats are in place. Some of the engines lack refinement.
Good: 5th generation Toyota RAV4 built on TNGA platforms, featuring new 2.0 litre 180PS 'Dynamic Force' petrol engine, new hybrid drive system and new AWD system.
Bad: 2019 car.
Good: Genuinely seats seven adults with some luggage space behind the rearmost seats. BMW 1.6 D-4D engine from 2014.
Bad: Drab design and dull to drive.
Good: Enjoyable to drive. Economical engines. Spacious. Available with a smooth and economical hybrid engine.
Bad: Doesn't feel as upmarket or as plush as some rivals.
Good: Powered by a 1.8-litre supercharged engine with more than 200PS.
Bad: Limited to just 400.
